SIMON MONDAY CHALLENGE: AT THE MOVIES!



Ciao a tutti! Cominciamo la settimana presentadovi la nostra sfida, questa volta veramente molto intrigante: AT THE MOVIES! Oggi tutto il Design Team ha lavorato con prodotti SPELLBINDERS, andate a vedere quanti meravigliosi e diversi progetti abbiamo sul  nostro blog per ispirarvi!

Hi everyone and thank you to be here today!! We start the week with our new challenge, this time really very intriguing: AT THE MOVIES! The entire design team worked with SPELLBINDERS products, check out our blog to see how many different projects we've created to inspire you!




Vi ricordo anche STAMPtember, l'evento annuale di Simon Says Stamp che vi riserva ogni giorno per tutto il mese di Settembre sorprese e ispirazioni!

STAMPtember continues during the entire month of September and it will give  you every day surprises  and inspirations!


Partiamo dal presupposto che ho due figli adolescenti (15 e 12 anni ) e che la saga dei romanzi di Hunger Games è una delle preferite  e che di conseguenza abbiamo visto anche tutti i film! Debbo essere sincera: mi sono davvero appassionata alle avventure di Katniss! Sarà perchè sono rimasta adolescente????  Come avrete capito mi sono ispirata a questa saga per il mio progetto! Adoro tutti i prodotti Spellbinders di Seth Apter: timbri, fustelle per tagliare e fustelle da embossing!  Appena ho avuto l'idea ho capito subito che  la fustella Triplex sarebbe stata perfetta per il mio progetto! Eccovi le foto con i materiali che ho usato ! 

I start to say you that I have two teenage kids (15 and 12), so the Hunger Games saga is one of our  faves and that consequently we have  seen all the movies! I must be honest: I'm really passionate about Katniss's  adventures! It will be because I still have a dreamer teenage soul? As you can see I was inspired by this saga for my project! I love all  Seth Apter/Spellbinders products: stamps, dies and embossing  folders! Soon as I have got the idea I quickly realized that Triplex die would be perfect for my project! Here are the photos with the materials that I used!

Partendo dallo sfondo ho usato Metallic Cardstock e l'ho embossato con il folder di Seth Apter. Distress paint Black soot e Ground Espresso per dipingerlo, una spruzzata di Lindy's Stamp Gang TAWNY TURQUOISE Moon Shadow Mist.  Questo spray è di colore marrone come base, quando lo spruzzate ha dei brillanrini di colore verde turchese che danno una patina luminosa. Mi piaceva moltissimo l'idea di avere come contorno per la mia tag un colore che ricordasse i boschi di Katniss! Per la tag non ho potuto rinunciare ai miei amati Distress Paints, tutti in colori caldi e fiammeggianti. La Grit paste è perfetta per creare texture e in questo caso l'ho mischiata con Distress Paints Hickory Smoke per ricreare l'atmosfera cupa e quasi incolore del Distretto 12, il distretto del carbone. La Grit paste con gli stencil di Tim Holtz è spettacolare!

Starting from the background I embossed Ranger Metallic Cardstock with Seth Apter folder, Maze. Black soot and Ground Espresso Distress paints to paint it, a splash of Lindy Stamp Gang's Tawny TURQUOISE Moon Shadow Mist. This spray is brown as a base but when you mist, the green turquoise glitter that contains gives a light patina to your work. I loved the idea of using a color that recalls the woods! For the tags I made use of my beloved Distress Paints, hot and flaming colors: Aged Mahogany, Wild Honey, Fired brick. The Grit paste is perfect to create texture and in this case I mixed with  Hickory Smoke to recreate the dark atmosphere and almost colorless of District 12, the coal district. The Grit paste combined with the Tim Holtz stencil is spectacular!




Il simbolo della ghiandaia imitatrice non è stato così semplice, poi sono stata folgorata dal nuovo set di Halloween di Tim e ho creato la mia ghiandaia con Black cardstock nero e .... foglia oro! Okay prometto che lascerò trascorre qualche tempo prima di usarla di nuovo! Ho tagliato  con la fustella Triplex di Seth Apter il cardstock Metallic core'dinations di Tim Holtz e l'ho coperta a random con i Distress paints e con lo spray Lindy's gang. 
Per le fiamme ho deciso di usare la nuva Thinlits di Tim Holtz TWISTED EDGE, ho colorato il mio bordo con gli alcohol inks e ripassato ai bordi con Distress crayons black soot e Walnut stain.

It was not so easy to create a customized version of Mockinjay icon. Then I was struck by the new set of Halloween stamps by Tim and I created my Mockingjay with Black cardstock .... and gold leaf! Okay, I promise I'll wait  some time before using it again ! I used Triplex die to cut  Core'dinations Metallic cardstock and I covered it randomly with Distress paints and spray Lindy's gang.
The new Tim Holtz's die TWISTED EDGE is really suitable to create my flames, I used Ranger METAL FOIL TAPE SHEETS and alcohol inks, highlighting the edges with black soot and Walnut Stain Distress Crayons.

The Hunger Games fans in your house may fight over who gets to keep this tag! Your creation captures the movie so accurately and your vision for using the materials shows just how masterful you are. The Mockinjay image is my favorite from Tim's release--please keep using it!
